Connor & Rachel

Mother of bride, Shauna says, "Kari helped us in so many ways to get my daughter’s wedding organized, set up, and flowing smoothly.  She thought of many details that we had not thought of along the way and was good to give her advice and then let my daughter make up her mind about how she wanted things to go on her big day.  We could not have done “day of” without Kari given all the things that go on that day.  She helped greatly with decor set up and many people said that it was one of the most beautiful, sweet weddings that they have seen. I strongly recommend Southern Bash!"

Mother of groom, Keir, agrees, "I know I am biased, but my son and daughter-in-law's wedding was incredible!  Kari-Southern Bash helped everything flow smoothly and she helped us make the bride's vision become a reality.  She is organized, bubbly, creative and efficient!"

Kari and Southern Bash are top notch professionals who made my wife, Mayra, and my special day perfect. Kari is organized, efficient, professional, kind, and a lot of fun. She was a gift from God.

Justin & Julia

It was so nice not having to worry about anything the day of and knowing that someone was taking care of it all.

Gia Randazzo, Photographer

"I have worked with several wedding planners and some can be completely irrelevant and others can seem overboard and unwavering making for a non-approachable uptight feeling. Kari is the Professional Planner that makes things look effortless. She was capable of style flexing and allowing space for change to happen on the fly while the Bride and Groom not having to worry about a thing. She was easy for me, the Wedding Photographer to communicate with and even made me feel like we were a team. This type of relationship-building is very important when you want everything to go smoothly for the Bride and Groom. Even on the stressful moments, Kari was there with a smile and kindly guiding the situations that would lead to results everyone could be proud of. Kari is worth your time, and investment so that you are not having to worry about the things that are very important and could use someone else's direction" -Gia Randazzo, Wedding Photographer,  https://www.giarandazzo.com/ 


Katherine & Matt

"I cannot say enough good things about Kari. From the moment we met her, we knew that she was exactly the coordinator we were looking for. She came to our first meeting prepared, and it was evident that she had already done her research about our vendors. Kari is detailed, organized, communicative, enthusiastic, and goes above and beyond to make sure that your day will go smoothly. It also helps that she is so much fun to work with! I was able to enjoy my wedding day stress-free, and it was all because of Kari. I highly recommend her for all wedding planning needs." - Kat, bride

"I seriously do not even know where to begin with Kari and her services. Kari is a true Rockstar wedding planner. She was in constant communication with my wife and I the entire process. She thought of things we did not and was with us every steep of the way. At one point in our reception our photographer left and Kari picked up the camera and started taking pictures. She will do anything to make your day special. I could not recommend her enough. You must go with her if you are thinking of booking a wedding coordinator." - Matt Brontoli, groom

Collin & Laura

"From the first conversation with Kari, I knew I had picked the perfect wedding planner for my daughter’s wedding! When I say I had no worries with her in charge, I mean just that! My daughter had the best day! Everything was perfect and all because of Kari’s abilities. She is an outstanding planner, organizer of chaos, and sounding board. AND the best part... she does it all with her sweet southern charm and sweet smile. I recommend Kari everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. If I could give infinity stars I would. Thank you Kari for making my baby’s day so magical, it wouldn’t have happened without you! PS, she has some awesome assistants too. Gabby and Marin we love ya! ❤️❤️"
